Theme and Content of the Workshop
Introduction to Modeling River Flow and Morphodynamics within the IRIC Interface
September 1st ~ 2nd (Thursday & Friday), 2016, University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka
This class covers a broad spectrum of river modeling techniques within the International River
Interface Cooperative (IRIC) public-domain modeling interface. The course will be taught in a
workshop format starting with basic data input and stepping through the processes of grid
generation, model execution, visualization, and verification. The interface incorporates a variety of
computational modeling approaches including finite difference and finite volume models using both
structured and unstructured coordinate systems; only a subset of the available techniques will be
covered in this short class. Basic principles will be briefly covered, but the emphasis of this short
course is hands-on application using data sets for realistic problems on real rivers and hill slopes.
For the class at the University of Moratuwa, the students will learn and use the following:
-FaSTMECH: Quasi-steady, quasi- three-dimensional model for river flow with morphodynamics.
Useful for long river reaches where high grid resolution is required for water-surface elevations and
velocities, flood predictions, and bed morphology changes.
-Nays2DH: Fully unsteady, two-dimensional model for river flow and morphodynamics
incorporating sophisticated turbulence treatments and advection schemes to ensure good treatment
of unsteadiness effects. Useful for a wide spectrum of river problems including bed response to
structures, bar evolution, spatial grain size sorting, and bank erosion.
-NaysFlood: Two-dimensional flooding inundation model with tools for multiple inflows and
outflows, easy incorporation of satellite data, and generic coordinate system for easy treatment of
very large domains. Useful for rapid estimates of flood inundation depths over complex areas
(including urban flooding), especially where only topographic LiDAR or other coarse DEMs are
available for topography.
-NaysCube: Fully three-dimensional flow, sediment transport and morphodynamics model with
Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) and several turbulence closures, including anisotropic
models that yield turbulence-driven secondary flows. Useful for many river flow and sedimentation
problems where complex 3-d structure with nonhydrostatic effects are important (e.g., flow and
sedimentation around structures, changes in vertical structure due to high acceleration or
Students should bring a laptop with at least 4 GB of ram and a few gigs of empty hard disk space.
The system was designed for use with current 64bit PC operating systems or PC emulators on Macs.
Users will need to have software installation capabilities on their laptops, so check with your
administrator if necessary. Installations for 32bit PCs will also be provided. Bring data sets with
topography, water-surface elevations, and any other data if you would like some assistance with
your own projects. The class will be taught by Prof. Ichiro Kimura, Dr. Tomoko Kyuka, and Prof.
Yasuyuki Shimizu from the University of Hokkaido and Dr. Jonathan Nelson from the US
Geological Survey National Research Program. All software is freely available.
